If you (and the kids) are ready to stick your neck out for an adventure, visit one of the largest ostrich farms outside Africa. Every hour, guided tours show the creatures' complete development from egg to mature bird. Kids enjoy the chance to hold an egg, stroke a day-old chick, and sit atop an ostrich for an unusual photo op. At the Restaurant Zambezi you can sample local ostrich specialties and other African dishes (reservations are recommended; closed Monday;
no dinner Tuesday). The gift shop sells handicrafts made in southern Africa, including leather goods and wood carvings, as well as products made by local artisans.
